STANOJEVIC AFTER THE DRAW FOR THE WC IN QATAR: ‘To solve the problems with the ghosts of the past!’

The Eagles have their chances!

After the draw held in Qatar, Serbia learned the names of its rivals – Brazil, Switzerland and Cameroon. The head of the professional staff of Belgrade’s Partizan – Aleksandar Stanojevic – also expressed his opinion:

“Honestly, I really like our group at the World Cup. It is nice that we will once again compare forces with Brazil, which is an exceptional selection and favorite in the group and for winning competitions, and there are Switzerland and Cameroon with which, if we look back, how Serbia looked and played under Dragan Staojkovic , certainly rivals we can deal with. I think we have a chance to advance to the second round, although in the first impression it may not look like that, but this team has quality, self-confidence, good play, is well led and I believe it will make us happy. ‘ – Stanojevic said in an interview with Telegraf and then added:


‘My personal opinion is that it is better that the first race is against the strongest team. Because, the second match in the group brings you a lot, and the third one can be decisive and that brings special pressure. Thus, it is the beginning of the competition, the first game in the group and, it seems to me, there is a greater chance of surprising the favorites. You remember that at the last World Cup, Switzerland surprised the Brazilians in that way… So I think it’s easier to be the strongest team right away, where we will definitely have our chance, and then we will look for our way. ‘

Almost identical group as at the World Cup in Russia ..

‘Yes, very strange. But, who knows, maybe that is a good sign to solve the problems with the “ghosts of the past”. We saw in Russia that we have the quality to deal with such selections, but some details decided. Although, we should not look back, four years have passed, and that is an extremely long period in football, because everything is changing terribly fast. In any case, we should be positive and believe in a good result, because the quality is certainly not in dispute! ‘
